The problem is that there is a perception in some people that they aren’t cheating. Yet, they are. And, while many of them are unknowingly doing it. There are a few who can be casually doing and they’ve no concern whatsoever.
Cheating is a behavior that affects both; men and women. While its in common for men to cheat in some cultures. There is lot of evidence about women cheating on men as well. So, let’s look into what triggers and how it begins.

So, we look at the three main reasons why people cheat.
Loss of Bonding and Connection
Relationships are all about bonding and connection. If a couple has bonding and connection, they are less likely to look here and there. But, if they lack it. This is the warning sign. The bonding and connection is a strange phenomenon. It is about that amazing feeling you have for your partner which stops you to look anywhere around. It arouses you, develops you, strengthens you and amazes you every moment. Although, there are issues between any two people. And that’s not bad. However, the problem is with larger issues which can destroy a relationship. Although, bonding and connection helps resolve them easily. Yet, if it is lost; it becomes difficult to get back easily.
Lack of Intimacy
Every couple knows what intimacy means. No, it’s not sex. It is much more than that. If you talk about intimacy, it is the trigger everyday when you start seeing someone initially. What happens is pretty simple. You want to touch, feel and cuddle. You want to talk about everything. You are crazy about that one sight. That one simple kiss on the hands, that holding someone in the arms, the slight arm twisting, and what not.
Intimacy is IMPORTANT. If there’s a lack of intimacy in partners, they are most likely to cheat. So, it’s important to carry on with the intimacy part of relationship.
We are humans. We get attracted and distracted. Our brain functions differently in several circumstances. We handle information in a dynamically beautiful manner. We get attracted to what we like. So, when a relationship starts. The connection, the intimacy, the attractiveness is at the peak. When these factors diminish, we are most likely to get distracted. This happens most of the time.
Now, imagine you’re losing on the two most important aspects of relationship: Bonding and Connection and the Intimacy. Here comes the most troubling trigger: the Third Connection!

And, while you do not have the defense lying in the former two points. You or your partner is likely to get entangled with someone else. And boom: the path to cheating begins.
